we move on now to more dramatic video as firefighters near kansas city battle a huge brush fire. they believe it was sparked by grass-cutting equipment. but the heat from the blaze and the high winds fanning it and creating the fire tornado. the fire is on prison property. but it closed a nearby highway. consuming about 1500 acres and is about 75% contained this morning. no homes are threatened at this time. not so in eastern oklahoma where there are more than two dozen grass fires burning. the most in years. were lost. yet. the city of tulsa has been filled with smoke from the fires. firefighters are using see there on these fires and officials say they are so intense right now. well, in northern california, the threat is much more wintry. a powerful system brought nearly a foot of snow to some of the higher elevations. strong winds are also limiting visibility with whiteout conditions.
3:33 am
the roads were cleared. and it may take as long as a week to clean up this weather mess in utah. a strong wind storm followed by a hailstorm and heavy snow. the winds blew vehicles off the road, uprooted trees and knocked a highway sign into power lines. thousands of residents lost power in the salt lake city area. temperatures fell 30 degrees within a short period. speaking of today's weather and the forecast, windy conditions will continue to threaten the great plains and midwest with high fire danger. downpours in the pacific northwest. another foot of snow is possible in the sierra nevada and cascades. snow and freezing rain in western new york. >> and we're talking record warmth in the midwest. 56 in chicago. 70 in kansas city. 60s in los angeles and atlanta. 80s in dallas and phoenix. 30s in new york and boston. well, a few storm cloud rumbles through last night's democratic town hall in las vegas. hillary clinton booed by the crowd when she accused bernie sanders of not being a real democrat until he decided to run
3:34 am
she also criticized sanders for his attacks on the two most recent democratic presidents. bernie sanders had a few harsh words for clinton as well, as the two candidates battled it out ahead of tomorrow's primary in south carolina and tuesday's vote in nevada. in an interview with b.e.t., sanders questioned clinton's admiration for president obama saying it's just her way of trying to win black votes. don't you think they should all do the lip sync showdown to determine who wins the primary? >> lip sync battle? >> that's it. >> that would be kind of fun. so this we know, donald trump is well known, as you know, for picking fights with anyone who questions or credited size him. and his popularity never seems to waiver. but now he is going head-to-head with one of the most beloved men on the planet. the lead area of 1.5 billion people on earth. here's abc's dan harris. >> reporter: donald trump has taken on plenty of opponents, but his latest beef might be the
3:35 am
the holy father. the pope was heading home after a trip to latin america when he was asked if an american catholic could vote for somebody like trump, given his stance on immigration? he responded, quoeshgts a person who thinks only about building walls wherever they may be and not building bridges is not christian. trump rarely one to turn the other cheek, hit back suggesting the mexican government was manipulating the pope. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. i'm proud to be a christian. they're using the pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves. >> reporter: he even said the pope should want him in the oval office. >> if and when the vatican is attacked by isis, i can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> reporter: and at the cnn town hall, trump not backing down. >> when you first heard the pope had said something about you that you thought, maybe i'm

insomniacs for two decades. good morning. i'm reena ninan. here are some of the top headlines we're following on this friday morning on "world news now." other major tech firms now supporting apple in its fight with the fbi. they agree that hacking a terrorist's iphone could set an unfortunate precedent. in the meantime, the fbi has searched the home of the san bernardino shooter's brother. full coverage ahead. a stunning chopper crash in hawaii. the private helicopter slamming into pearl harbor near the "uss arizona" visitor center. five people were on board, all survived. but a teenager was taken to a hospital in critical condition. investigators are looking into the cause. a new report finds that more than 58,000 of america's bridges are structurally deficient. among them some of the most nation's most iconic. you see one there, the heavily traveled including the memorial
4:00 am
the brooklyn bridge. a new study finds one in three americans don't get enough sleep. that should be at least seven hours. the lack of sleep puts you at risk for chronic diseases like heart disease. those are some of our top stories on this friday, february 19th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >> good morning, everyone. we begin this half hour with the apple and fbi standoff. of course, ever since the san bernardino massacre two months ago, the agency has been trying to get data from the iphone of one of the killers. >> apple won't provide the encryption key despite a court order this week. with more here's abc's pierre thomas. >> reporter: the fbi searching the home of syed farook's brother, but no closer to getting inside his iphone. industry giants closing ranks behind apple, even as authorities claim they need to be able to hack into phones to crack cases beyond terrorism. as in the case of two officers recently shot in new york. police locked out of potential
4:01 am
>> this is the phone that was used by one of his associates in that case. despite having a court order, we cannot access this iphone 5. >> reporter: the issue of breaking into encrypted phones ignited by the fbi's legal challenge to apple over the farook case. experts telling abc news it would not be that hard to design a gateway or backdoor. >> from my perspective, it's relatively easy to create the back door, but just because something's easy to do doesn't mean you should do it. >> reporter: some analysts say it opens a pandora's box for tens of millions of smartphone users. >> you would have created what amounts to a smart software bomb that if it falls into the wrong hands, it could then be turned around and used to unlock every single iphone and ipad in existence. >> reporter: law enforcement officials are frustrated with apple's attitude. so, expect the justice dertment to take additional steps in court to force apple to open that iphone immediately. pierre thomas, abc news,
4:02 am
is in federal custody this morning after showing support for isis in social media. the fbi searched her home in an early morning raid after knocking down the doors with a battering ram. federal investigators say she used a twitter account associated with isis to call for the murder of two fbi agents. she allegedly even posted their home addresses, as well. and as if that weren't enough, there are also fears isis may get its hands on the makings for a nuclear bomb. radioactive material that was stolen a few months ago from an american company's facilities in iraq was supposed to be used to help find leaks in oil field equipment. iraq has been looking for the material without any success. pope francis has raised some eyebrows with the comment about the zika virus outbreak. on his flight home, francis suggested that women threatened with the zika virus could use contraception. pregnant mothers are among those most vulnerable to the zika virus. the pope said that he believes
4:03 am
difference between preventing pregnancy and aborting a fetus. he also maintained church doctrine rejecting abortion as a response to the crisis. well, something donald trump is want known for backing off, but now he's easing up on his heated rhetoric about pope francis. more in a moment but the pope's comments about trump and his reaction have rocked the presidential race. here's abc's terry moran. >> reporter: on board the papal airplane, a stunning moment. [ speaking foreign language ] >> donald trump. >> reporter: pope francis asked directly about donald trump's plans to build a wall on the u.s./mexico border, and deport millions of undocumented immigrants, speaking from the heart. a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not of building bridges, is not christian, the pope said. adding pointedly, this man is not christian, if he has said things like that.
4:04 am
and it came after a week of francis in mexico, again and again, preaching a highly charged political message. like those scenes in juarez, a few feet from the u.s. border, francis giving his blessing across the rio grande to undocumented immigrants in the u.s. and then demanding that more be done for all desperate migrants. no more death, no more exploitation, he pleaded. pope francis is a man who chooses his words carefully. he knew exactly what he was saying. he knows trump, he knows the issues. they're close to his heart. but the pope also told us that he's not a politician. he's speaking as a pastor, not trying to support a candidate but trying to bring to voters and politicians what he believes are the teachings of jesus christ. terry moran, abc news, the vatican. let's move now to the war of words that triggered all kinds of responses from trump's republican rivals and some of them might even surprise you. at a town meeting in south
4:05 am
candidates weighed in. but perhaps most surprising, trump actually eased up on his original attack on the pope. >> i don't think this is a fight. i think he said something much softer than was originally reported by the media. >> i don't think it's appropriate to question donald trump's faith. >> listen, that's been donald and the pope. >> we have a right to control who comes in, when they come in and how they come in. >> interesting. going into tomorrow's south carolina primary, most of the latest polls still show that trump has a double-digit healthy lead, although one has trump in a virtual tie with ted cruz. >> the candidacy of ted cruz is being questioned, challenged today in court. a man in illinois is objecting to cruz being on the ballot in his state because cruz was born in canada. cruz says that doesn't matter because his mom was a u.s. citizen. the man who filed the suit against cruz says if cruz is the republican nominee, democrats could challenge his eligibility in the fall. experts say this challenge will likely go nowhere. in an increasingly tight
4:06 am
are taking off their gloves. at last night's town hall meeting in las vegas, hillary clinton was booed at one point by the crowd when she accused bernie sanders of not really being a democrat until he decided to run for president. she also criticized sanders for his attacks on the two most recent democratic presidents. bernie sanders had harsh words of his own, questioning hillary clinton's admiration for the president, saying she is simply pandering for black votes. the two candidates are locked in a dead heat ahead of tomorrow's caucuses in nevada and the primary in south carolina in a week and a day. the suspect accused in last spring's washington, d.c., mansion murders will be in court today to face murder and other charges. police say 35-year-old daron wint killed an executive, his wife, his son and their housekeeper, then set their home on fire before fleeing.
